1981 Lotus Esprit Turbo Essex Commemorative Edition *SOLD*


Lotus Esprit Turbo Essex Commemorative Edition No.018
This is a very rare opportunity to own the most sort after of all the Esprit models.
The Essex Commemorative edition was launched to commemorate the launch of the new Turbo Esprit in collaboration with Essex petroleum who where the main Formula One sponsor at the time and was unveiled at a party hosted by Essex in London's Royal Albert Hall. However the planned 100 commemorative cars where cut short , meaning that only 34 production Essex commemorative cars have been recorded , 23 for the domestic UK market and 11 for the export market. This information has been provided by Lotus Cars.
This car is Essex No. 018, Chassis Number 10942 according to records there are only 13 Essex cars left in the UK.
I have owned this car for 5 years in which time it has undergone a full restoration with a full engine rebuild by PNM Engineering and a full mechanical overhaul the body was stripped and fully repainted to a very high standard and the interior has been re trimmed.
The car has only covered 51,000 miles with a very large history file including the original owners handbook.
If you are seriously interested in owning a piece of Lotus history please call Mark on
